Warm Turmeric Ginger Milk

Making winter days a little better with this warm turmeric ginger milk. Not only is it warm and comforting, but this milk’s bright color is such a happy sight on a cloudy day like this one.  We’re expecting rain for the next couple of days, which makes me crave spring even more. I usually love winter, but this one has been dreadful. We were basically stuck inside from the end of December to the beginning of January due to the extreme cold temperatures. Since then, we’ve been experiencing drastic changes in temperature, which is not ideal for any outdoor activity. We seem to always have a few cold days with snow, followed by mild temperatures and heavy rain. It then freezes again and we’re left with icy roads and trails. Basically…

The Healthiest Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate

Everyone is sharing healthy smoothie and salad recipes to start the New Year and I’m just here, sharing a peanut butter hot chocolate… One week into 2018.  This is not just any hot chocolate recipe though. This is the healthiest hot chocolate recipe (just go with it).  Why am I calling it the healthiest hot chocolate recipe? Well, because it doesn’t have any cream or sugar. Instead, it’s made with cashews, peanut butter, dates and cocoa. What could be healthier?!  (Okay, there is probably a “healthier” hot chocolate out there with special expensive ingredients, but I wanted a simple healthy drink that uses everyday ingredients). I made this recipe a few weeks ago, after walking home from work in -34°C weather (we’ve been experiencing very…

It’s almost the new year (!!), which means it’s time to see which were the top 10 recipes of 2017 on the blog.  Because, why not? These are the most popular recipes this year according to you. In other words, they’re the recipes you loved most. It’s no surprise that most of them are desserts – number 10 being the exception. You guys are like me, you love healthy treats! Then again, who doesn’t?! Before I leave you to the top recipes of the year, I want to thank you all for your ongoing support.

Healthy Peanut Butter Crunch Balls

I would have shared these healthy peanut butter crunch balls with you sooner, but the truth is, I didn’t have any photos to go with the recipe. That’s the problem with being a food photographer and working full time at another job. You don’t get enough light to take pictures during the week. I developed the recipe earlier this week and I knew I wanted to share it with you guys for the holidays. I know I’m last minute, but at least I got to share the recipe before Christmas! Just before driving home to see our family. And before the freezing rain starts… We’re expecting two storms over the weekend, including 20-30 cm of snow on Christmas day. I guess we’ll have a white Christmas after all! I know…

The Healthiest Peppermint Mocha

This may just be the healthiest peppermint mocha you’ll ever see.   I realize that this may be an exaggeration; I have no idea what other peppermint mocha recipes are out there. Nevertheless, this is the healthiest one I’ve ever had. Plus, it’s the perfect holiday drink. Peppermint mochas were always my holiday drink of choice when going to Starbucks. And I don’t know about you guys, but I’m all about making my favorite treats a little healthier. That way, we can enjoy our favorite treats and feel good about it. There’s still place for real treats of course… It’s all about balance.   Are you as excited for the holidays as I am?! Now that my dietetic exam is done, I have more time…
